Someone has said, "With no idea of diamonds, we settle for glass."

Are you settling in life? What are you settling for? Don't come to the end of your life and have to say, "I could have been more. I could have done more."

What is your "blue-sky potential"? Could you:

• Become a first-class husband and father?

• Preach with mind and heart on fire from God?

• Write articles and books that would be of help to the body of Christ?

• Lead a network of thousands of fully committed disciples of Jesus Christ?

• Influence others through the power of character?

We ourselves are often the limiting factor. God will do "exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think." We are often only interested in doing just enough to get by. Don't settle for less than being all that you can be for God. Do not put artificial self-imposed restrictions on what God might do through you. Keep pressing toward the prize of the high calling of God. As D.L. Moody said, "The world has yet to see what one man, totally dedicated to God, can do."
